First frame of 100 odd animation from a few nights ago, may finish it if I don't lose the will to live first 😂

Dave I was not aware of this Comet so thanks for the photo - it is faint. I note from https://cometchasing.skyhound.com/ that it will reach mag 8.8 by the end of the month. Once the Moon is out of the way I will give it a go in the 12" Dob. I have just updated Stellarium so it now includes this Comet.

I just about managed to spot Comet C/2018 W2 tonight with my 12 inch dob and the 8mm Ethos eyepiece. Moonlight was hampering things and washing it out. NGC 404 looked somewhat brighter to me.

Cartes do Ciel has the position pretty much spot on currently:
